If you are trying to declutter here are a few basic rules:
Throw it out if:
1. You don't know what it is.
2. It's broken - most of the time it is cheaper to buy a new one than repair.
3. You have too many of the same thing.
Keep it if:
1. It belongs to someone else, unless they give you permission to throw it out.
2. It makes you happy.
3. You can't make up your mind. Keep it another year, and if you don't use it, then get rid of it.
Most important, if you want an organized life, take one step at a time. Each small thing you clean out will ultimately lead to a more ordered life and decluttered life in the long term.
